Grounded Feature Board

Welcome to the Grounded Feature Board! Our goal from the start was to include the community in the development in Grounded, and with that, we want to be as transparent as possible with features we plan to work on. This feature board includes high-level details on plans for Grounded, and we would like to update it as we progress each month. As a caveat, we are still in active development, and this board is subject to change based on your feedback, the state of development, what's best for the game, the unknown, and our future plans. Nothing is set in stone and features could be moved up, pushed back, or unfortunately removed. Details on certain features may remain vague until we are more confident in the idea, and we want to keep a few things secret to keep your experience exciting and unexpected. This also doesn't contain everything that we plan on doing, so please continue to provide your feedback to shape Grounded into the best possible game it can be. Thank you!

To craft those amazing items and more, you'll need to harvest resources from not only the fauna found in the pond, but also the new creatures you'll come across such as the Diving Bell Spiders, Water Boatmen, and Tadpoles!
